Newton-by-the-Sea is a civil parish in the county of Northumberland in Northern England. The parish is about 8 miles northwest of Alnwick, and lies on the coast between the larger settlements of Embleton and Seahouses.

There are two distinct settlements in the parish: High Newton-by-the-Sea (which, despite its name, is about half a mile inland) and the coastal Low Newton-by-the-Sea, owned by the National Trust.[2][3] The area is notable for the diversity of birds to be observed.[4] Just to the south is Embleton Bay.

Governance[edit]

Newton-by-the-Sea is in the parliamentary constituency of Berwick-upon-Tweed.
